SURFSIDE, Fla. (AP) — The number of people missing in the Florida condominium collapse fell following a new review.
But fears of another potentially catastrophic failure deepened Friday after engineers found unsafe conditions in a different tower and ordered the entire building evacuate.
The city of North Miami Beach announced that an audit prompted by the deadly collapse of Champlain Towers found the 156-unit Crestview Towers building structurally and electrically unsafe.
Meanwhile, four more bodies emerged from the rubble in Surfside, including the 7-year-old daughter of a Miami firefighter.
That brings the confirmed death toll to 22.
The number of missing dropped from 145 to 126.
